Photo Coverage: The Stars Come Out for LUCKY GUY's Opening Night

BroadwayWorld was on hand for the most star studded opening of the season, last night April 1, as Tom Hanks made his Broadway debut in Lucky Guy, written by Nora Ephron and directed by George C. Wolfe. Check out photos below!

Nora Ephron began her professional career as a reporter at The New York Post in 1962 and Lucky Guy marks a return to her journalistic roots. Her new play is about the scandal- and graffiti-ridden New York of the 1980s, as told through the story of the charismatic and controversial tabloid columnist Mike McAlary (Tom Hanks). Lucky Guy is the third collaboration between Tom Hanks and Nora Ephron, following the films Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail.

From his sensational reporting of New York's major police corruption to the libel suit that nearly ended his career, the play dramatizes the story of McAlary's meteoric rise, fall and rise again.

Also starring are Maura Tierney as Alice McAlary; Christopher McDonald as lawyer Eddie Hayes; Peter Gerety as editor John Cotter; Courtney B. Vance as editor Hap Hairston; Peter Scolari as columnist Michael Daly and Richard Masur as editors Jerry Nachman and Stanley Joyce; with Brian Dykstra as policeman Brian O'Regan; Michael Gaston as columnist Jim Dwyer; Dustyn Gulledge as Dino Tortoricci; Deirdre Lovejoy as reporter Louise Imerman and editor Debby Krenek; Danny Mastrogiorgio as reporter Bob Drury and Stephen Tyrone Williams as Abner Louima. The production also features Paula Jon De Rose, Joe Forbrich, Thomas Michael Hammond, Andrew Hovelson and Marc Damon Johnson.

The production features scenic design by David Rockwell, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, sound design by Scott Lehrer and lighting design by Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer. Projection design is by batwin + robin productions, and casting is by Jordan Thaler/Heidi Griffiths.
